Kerry O’Keefe of Norwich was among the volunteers honored by CRIS Radio at a reception held at the Governor’s Mansion in Hartford.
O’Keefe was marking her fifth anniversary of volunteering with CRIS Radio, a 36-year old nonprofit and Connecticut’s only radio reading service for people who are blind or print disabled. CRIS Radio provides audio versions of articles featured in nearly 70 newspapers and magazines, including children’s and Spanish-language magazines, thanks to the dedication of more than 300 volunteers. In addition, the volunteers also provide audio versions of the Common Core State Standards and custom educational materials requested by schools for students with special needs.
